--- Description ---

Konversation is a user-friendly Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client
for KDE.

--- Release Notes ---

We are extremely pleased to announce Konversation's newest major
release, v1.1. Konversation 1.1 is a special release for us in
multiple ways: It's our farewell to KDE 3, by way of being the
last major release built upon that venerable platform. It's also
our biggest release yet, in terms of the number and magnitude of
the changes.

The additions and improvements in this release are both user-vis-
ible and under the hood. Some of the highlights are rewritten con-
nection handling (robustness and correctness improvements, better
support for IRC URLs, bookmarking and more), redone DCC with better
UI and Passive/Reverse DCC support, a redone away system with the
addition of auto-away support, redone and much more useful remember
/ marker line support, a new outbound traffic scheduler that is
capable of aggressive throttling to avoid flooding while smartly
reordering messages to improve latencies, great convenience addi-
tions like a "Next Active Tab" shortcut, and much, much more, along
with a large number of bugfixes and tweaks to round things out.
Note: All fixes made since RC1 are marked with a "[New since RC1]"
label in the changelog.

We're confident that this release is the best and most robust ver-
sion of Konversation published so far, and upgrading comes highly
recommended to all users. Enjoy!
